Halo 3 ftw.
going back to that vista comment, i would probably only count the sales on the 360 and wii, not on other platforms.
But al in all Halo 3 will win. Even if it turns out to be crap, EVERY SINGLE xbox owner will purchase it. I cant say the same for MP3.

You're free to use that metric, but one of the reasons I don't is that I don't actually expect the Wii to compete on the same level as the other consoles. I don't anticipate potential 360 users forgoing a 360 purchase in favor of the Wii (though Wii60 combos aren't uncommon).Originally Posted by ottoman
Instead, I expect the Wii to siphon PC gamers. Why? MP3C testers (internal Nintendo ones) have already started comparing the Wiimote-nunchuck system to the long beloved keyboard-mouse control system that so captures the hardcore FPS portion of gaming. The control system's potential has yet to be completely fleshed out, but the potential is both obvious and great.
PC gamers aren't using the PC for gfx, although there are high end gaming rigs for people like that, subsidized consoles like the xbox and ps are both a better gfx value. The cost of replicating the graphical abilities of the consoles on your PC to enjoy games like Halo and Oblivion at their best settings and enjoyable framerates is considerable. Most of the gamers are playing with much more modest rigs (like myself), and although console gaming can be a much more convenient experience (pop it in and play as opposed to installs and conflicts and bugs and updates and min reqs, et al), how do you really play Command and Conquer with the traditional console control system? How can you reach the level of accuracy on FPS on the normal console control that you can with a keyboard-mouse (or N52 speedpad, or 3D joystick etc) combo?
The Wii can change all that, and still deliver graphical excellence (not HD, and not next gen, but not crap either).
I'm not disagreeing with you vehemently, I just see the Wii bringing in new console owners rather than competing just in the console market.

Personally I am really looking foward to metroid, but on a larger scale more people will be looking foward to halo 3 as probably everyone who's got an xbox will get it.

It will definitely be Halo 3, but I will be playing Metroid 3, so I am happy.

halo 3 will win even tho i like metriod better
PS3 now, sorry Wii. You gather dust.
i think there might be a slight chance of MP3 winning
Thanks To Dan.Skater For The Awesome Sig!
LMAO, halo will crush metroid. you guys are living in a dream if you think otherwise.
i drink beer and play wii
Personally I'd prefer MP3.
Why? Well on the one hand, I see it like Tim Abasth from Control+Alt+Delete ( http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/news.php?i=1393 ) . Halo was cool and stuff, but well... It's just being Halo, just with a 3.
On the other hand I don't even like Halo too much. The Thing is, Halo 2001 rocked hard. But when Microshit took over publishing they imeadiatly turned it into... well... shit...
So I wouldn't take MP3 because it's better than Halo3, but because Halo just doesn't make it anymore for me.
feel free to add me to your Wii, but don't forget to PM me
how about some rep for good posts

Halo 3 of course, people metriod is good dont get me wrong. But halo has a good storyline and rocks in Mulitplayer. Halo 3 will have a way better storyline than 1 and 2, and the graphics will totally kill Metriod. I played both and i like Halo because of its controls and it has vehicles and has more weapons to use.
HALO 3 WILL BE RELEASE SEPTEMBER 25 2007
